Leo Genovese Quintet at the Village Vanguard 7/28-8/2 PDF Print
Written by Ronaldo Oregano   
Sunday, 26 July 2015
Leo Genovese Carlos Pericia

In less than a decade’s time, Argentinian pianist Leonardo Genovese has already established a solid reputation as an instrumentalist and composer who is not afraid to explore the lesser known corners of the musical landscape. Although best known for his work with Grammy winning bassist and vocalist Esperanza Spalding and Joe Lovano, Genovese’s new album, Seeds showcases his ability to move effortlessly between the melodic and the chromatic and celebrate the inherent mystery and beauty in each. He brings this music and his quintet featuring Hal Crook on trambone, Dan Blake o saxophone, Leo Genovese on piani, John Lockwood on bass, and Bob Gullotti drums to the Village Vanguard on Tuesday, July 28th through Sunday, August 2nd.

Heads of State

Heads of State featuring four of the most respected  and admired jazz artists of our time will celecbrate the release of its first recording Search for Peace at Smoke on Friday, July 24th through Sunday, July 26th. A band over 50 years in the making, Gary Bartz, Larry Willis, Buster Williams, and Al Foster had performed together countless times in different combinations and contexts over their storied careers, but it wasn’t until September 2014 that they appeared as a quartet. The occasion that night was a tribute to McCoy Tyner, and the results were so inspired and the response so overwhelming that they knew right away they had something worth keeping. As pianist Larry Willis puts it, “I don’t think there are any bands that are doing quite what we’re doing right now.” Their unique chemistry and musicianship as documented on Search for Peace can be enjoyed in person this sweekend.
